This episode was weird! Like a different team of people wrote it, or something.

...Megumi is a GIRL name.

people think electro girl (i forgot her name) is a lesbian, but i disagree. just because she said her wekness is tohru, doesn't mean she's a lesbo. but i dont think she's stragiht, though.

I thought it was rather strange, but it mixed it up some though.

The animation in this episode was superb! I remember seeing this ep on the FUNimation Channel, and that's the whole reason why I decided to start watching this series.

This episode has a different director. That's why the style has changed but I loved it.

Wow, this episode seems like the outlier of the series. o_O' Um, it was good to see an episode with more Hanajima in it, but... I still missed seeing the Souma family members and Tohru more. D:

My gawd though, Yuki's "fan club" isn't even a club... OR a gang. It's a cult.

Personally thought this was a awesome episode, it was a different kind of humor, a kind i like.

Man, those two times she turned her head slowly to stare at the person filming her across the way.. LOL

I really liked the styling of this ep. Almost felt like SHAFT had a hand in it. Real backgrounds, first person perspectives, time shifts. Maybe it's just me. Either way, I liked it. Hana looking toward the camcorder was pretty funny as well.

Huh. Different art style wasn't too bad, but personally, the episode itself just seemed kinda boring. I guess I just didn't care about Yuki's fan club or those in the club. Mehhhh. I wanted more Souma/Juunishi plot, but we can't all have nice things.

Although I did like Hana's appearance here, she gives off a kuudere vibe that really looks like it must have influenced Yuki Nagato's character in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Loved the Blair Witch Project first person perspective. Hana-chan zapped that camcorder real good.....

Hana and her brother was awesome! Tohru is lucky to have her as a friend. Well, she's lucky to have Tohru as a friend too. Tohru is just so kind that's why everybody loves her.

It was different, but I can't say I enjoyed it a lot. They waste the shows time on some random characters and we barely get to know some of the zodiacs.

^This was in the manga so they didn't waste the shows time. They took something so-so and turned it into something much more interesting, with the different style and all. I noticed they changed a small part near the end, in the manga Megumi who calls Suki "it" but in the anime it's Saki who says "the likes of him" in reference to Yuki. Not sure why they made that change.

Omg I loved this episode, it was hilarious! Hana is amazing omg, glad she was a big focus this time around. Those fan girls are psychotic, I was dying when the one girl was like "He called me #2...that means I'm safe!!!" LOL

And Hana saying she doesn't see the resemblance between her and her brother haha xD

The President of the Yuki fan club is so pretty though, but she's insane! Poor innocent Tohru, but yes at her getting all those girls jealous of her.

Being from another group of people's perspective this episode was a lot more enjoyable than most of the other episodes. So far this might be my favorite episode. Way better feel than most.

That episode was hilariously meta, with all the camera angles, the character looking straight in the camera and N°2 not giving a single fuck. That trio is hilariously stupid. How do they even breath...

Hana brother is a goddamn twin. Scary.

This is one of the few episodes of this fairly lackluster anime that really stood out to me. The animation was grand for a couple reasons. For one the cinematography was drastically different and felt well cinematic for once. The 3D rendering of the house made it feel even more like a horror movie for the fan club's perspective. And overall, I actually felt like I learned a moral by the end of the episode. Hands down, one of the best episodes of Fruits Basket.
